El Recuerdo, I hear you calling me,
Back from my slumbers, my dreamy reverie;
Hush ! the night winds are softly rustling,
Shadows faintly haunt the sky.
Myriad stars around are clustering,
An angel of peace doth hover nigh.
I listen. A whisper, a whisper, is it I hear?
Which seems so far, yet so near,
Yes, its just El Recuerdo seeking me.
Gently calling o'er life's weary seas.
Bidding me sit and think alone
Of Alma Mater, the "Elms" once my home.
I'm coming, yes, I'm coming El Recuerdo dear,
I'll open memories portals and glance back o'er
To the days when once I lingered,
Happily, carefree, with you,
Yes I'll come and answer El Recuerdo,
My Alma Mater, home so true.

Right Reverend Thomas M. O'Leary, the most
royal benefactor of the "Elms", has endeared
himself to all who have come under his jurisdic-
tion and gone forth from the portals of the "Elms"
upholding those lofty ideals inculcated by the
example of his true Christian life. The Psalm
of Life may truly indeed be applied to our beloved
Bishop where Longfellow says:
"Not enjoyment, and not sorrotv,
Is our destined end or way;
But to act, that each tomorroiv
Find lis fartlier than today".

The curtain falls on schooldays dear, 25,
And your gentle voice I hear, 25,
To take care and heed your call.
To be loyal best of all,
Alma Mater, Alma Mater, Senior Class 25.
Fare thee well and guide us right, 25,
O'er the rocks and shoals of Hfe, 25,
As the mother bird at dawn,
Softly chants her warning song;
Fare thee well Alma Mater, Senior Class 25.
Marcella R. Kelly '25
Seniors only, tried and true, could endure the hardships of in-
iation necessary to admit them to the Epsilon Lamba's sacred
realms. A keen literary mind was one of the most important re-
quisites for admittance into the mysteries which enshroud this
famous association. Its thirty-two members will always cherish
the pleasantest memories of the happy hours spent within the
secluded wall of St. Joseph's Hall. Many and varied were the sub-
jects discussed by members.
We bequeath our much enjoyed inheritance to the class of '26
with the sincere hope that it will be conducted in as efficient and
clever a manner as we, their predecessors have earnestly endeavored
In the early days of Autumn 1923,
Thirty happy girlish figures appeared at 0. L. E.
Some from whirling cities
Like Springfield, Holyoke too,
Many came from mountain sides
The Berkshire Hills so blue.
One there was from Worcester,
The city of seven hills
Another came from Bondsville
And Charlton's country rills.
Was'nt it just too funny
That cool September day
When each would look at the other
Wondering what to say?
But soon the ice was broken
And very soon indeed.
The thirty girlish figures
Talked at a terrible rate of speed.
Then began our Normal days.
School, entertainments, socials and plays
And before we knew and were able to believe
- Away sped the year of '23.
1924 holds many pleasures in memories store;
Especially September of that year
Our hearts were happy and filled with cheer
For to us was given the best of all
The privilege of entering O'Leary Hall.
While dwelling on the pleasures of 1924,
We must mention two figures
Who appeared on Senior floor ;
For Stockbridge and Great Barrington
They were pleased to intercede
So we took them into our Normal class
And pleased they were indeed,
For despite the fact they came the last
We welcomed them not the least.
Now 'tis past the dawning of 1925,
And we're just full of longings
While our hearts doth throb with sighs;
For all the joy and gladness
Of two, swift, happy years.
Is locked up in our memories
And cherished there so dear,
To bring fun, jest and laughter
Through glimmerings of unshed tears.
Marcella R. Kelly '25
"Hai)j)ii art thou as if everi/ day tlinu
Jias't picked up a horseshoe."
One belated October day, our l)eloved
Nellie strolled within the California
Pivot Hedge and took her smiling place
in the hearts of '25. Her ever ready
smile and carefree attitude quickly won
for her many friends; and we are sure
that her lovable nature will brighten
her path through life. In addition to
all her capabilities Nellie possessed an
aptitude as a keen first baseman on our
class baseball team and filled that post
admirably in the interclass games.
"Be as thu presence is, gracious and
Mary is one of those rare girls in
whom there is a mixture of studious-
ness and humor. Her ability and good
common sense as well as her willing-
ness to help, make her the best friend
'2 5 can have. How spotlessly neat and
tidy Mary does manage to keep her
much revered person. Admire her we
do for, this; also for her generosity and
willingness to respond most graciously
to the clarion call and assistance to
others. If one. were an artist, he might
paint her in delicate hues of pure gold
and true blue.
"Ever in cheei-ful mood art thou ivhen
others are filled with gloomy fore-
bodings of ill."
Do we all know Bonnie? I should
say we do. Bonnie came to us from
the Berkshires and we are certainly
grateful to them for sending such a
charming representative. Her happy
disposition and sunny smile have made
her a much sought for companion
among her acquaintances. Of her suc-
cess we are assured for Bonnie was one
of the strong pillars of the class of '2 5
and it was her business-like ability in
managing many of our social affairs
that made them such a success.
MARY LOUISE CAROLAN
"Her name is learning, her domain un-
Of all the fetters she commands the key."
Louie is the only contribution Spring-
field has given to O. L. E.'s class of '2 5
When it comes to designs for programs,
Louie was always a willing worker. Her
keen intellect and artistic ability will
help her to climb the ladder of success
in what ever walk of life she may choose
to follow. Although Louie was a day
boarder during her first year at Nor-
mal, we were fortunate to have her with
us for a portion of her Senior year,
and great was the mirth and joy that
she spread within our midst.
"Sweet was the light in her ei/es."
If ever you see a petite little miss, wee
but mighty, with raven black hair, long
black lashes casting a shadow over the
azure blue of her eyes, it is none other
than Mary. How we welcomed the tin-
kle of the bell rung by Mary in some
trying period. Many and various were
the devices contrived by her original
mind which aided us greatly during our
"Thou art good, sweet maid, and also
thou art clever.
Thou dost noble things, thou aiiiiest high
all dai/ long
And so thou xvill make life, death, and
that vast forever one grand sweet
"The scholar first ivith her book — aflame
ivith the glorii or harvested truth."
The old saying "Better late then
never" was certainly proven to us, for
although Alice failed to come to the
"Elms" for her Junior year, the class of
'2 5 was willing to welcome her to their
number. Alice's teaching experience
helped us over many a bump, for she
was willing to impart her knowledge to
us when a lesson plan was part of our
assignment. Without her cheerful help
and friendship we would have missed a
great deal at the "Elms".
"Your voice was ever soft, gentle and
An excellent thing in woman."
To do good for others, to make them
happy seems to be the generous aim
of Margaret's life. Her highly develop-
ed sense of humor often resulted in an
endearing giggle that lightened the
gloom of the darkest moment and un-
failingly brought an answering response
to the faces of her comrades. The class
was not slow to appreciate her musical
ability and before long it was her special
honor to preside at her chosen instru-
ment for all musical festivities. We
know that there same charming quali-
ties will win for her the sincere and
lasting admiration of her friends in later
"Contentment is a pearl of great price."
We are grateful to Worcester *'nr
many things, but most of all for Cath-
rine Doyle. As a mathematician she
had few peers. During our Senior year,
when cross-word puzzles were at their
lieight they found no greater a d?votee
than Katie. Her vocabulary was as
unlimited as the boundless skies above
and Funk and Wagnalls was her firm
voucher. May there always be a silver
lining in your life and may the future
bless you with benefits as rare as you
daily give to us by your sincerity and
"Laughter holding both her sides."
Good natured, forgivable Mary, her
frank, open countenance, glowing per-
sonality and happy disposition lend
cheerfulness to the gloomiest hour. Her
strange combination of humor, good
sportsmanship and excellent scholarship
will make her thei "Woman of worth".
As a rule Mary did not keep the postal
employees very busy, nevertheless on
certain occasions they were so over-
burdened that they were forced to hire
assistance. The instigators of these
occasions found them as much a source
of amusement as Mary did.
"Cheerfulness throws sunlight on the
paths of life."
We look at Rose, her petite form and
marvel that one so small can carry all
she knows. Rose is one of our Holyoke
day scholars whom O. L. E. shall re-
gret to lose. She is one of those light-
hearted, cheerful girls whom you love
to be with and the class of '2 5 havo
taken advantage of this fact even
though she is not always with us. One
thing especially must we compliment
her for, her loyalty to her Alma Mater
and her willingness to help in anything
that concerns it. They say and we find
it to be true "As you are now, so you
shall be". So of Rose's life in the
future it is unnecessary to prophesy.
"Her kind eyes smiling fondly."
Numbered among our day scholars
was one well beloved by every member
of '2 5. Helen spent her first year as
a regular at O. L. E. and endeared her-
self to everyone; so it was a great blow
to all when in our Senior year Helen
decided to commute. A friend with all
the virtues of a friend is Helen, thought-
ful, reliable and willing to help others.
"That inexhaustible good nature ivhich is
in itself the most precious gift
"Ever// humor hath his adjunct pleasure"
How a rosy radiant dawn is welcomed
by the world's whirling metropolis after
a dreary, rainy day. Such a welcome
is showered upon Nora as she enters
the circle of her many friends and class-
mates. We understand though, why it
is just, that it should be so; for the
Divinities have molded Nora and have
inculcated into her highly developed
imaginative powers a most pleasing
sense of humor. Knowing alas that it
is not in our poor power to do justice
to that great gift, we will pass on to
her appreciation and talent in the musi-
cal lines, her love and mastery of history
ancient, medieval and modern and
lastly though not least the art of telling
stories well, especially those appealing
to child nature and well may we style
her a great soul. One who rises above
the praise and dispraise of men.
HELEN E. GRADY
"He?- hair ivas golden as the stars of
Her form was lovelier than the sun at
Fitter, patter two little feet stepped
into the Chicopee station, then a be-
wildered blond head sought for a taxi
to O. L. E. Since then our school has
been graced by the genial and graceful
girl from Charlton. Helen is a true
comrade and her loyalty to her com-
panions is unbreakable.
"To stand by one's friends to the utter-
And fight a fair fight with one's foe;
Never to quit and never to twit,
And never to peddle one's ivoe."
"None knew thee, but to love thee."
We all agree that the Fates were kind
to the class of '2 5 when they sent Peggy
Although wholly unassuming, Peggy
showed us her true worth by her daily
actions. And if ever we were inclined
to doubt the ancient proverb "Actions
speak louder than words," we but
thought of Peggy and our misgivings
We know that the sterling qualities
which have endeared her to each and
every one of us, will be her greatest
aids in climbing thei ladder of success.
"Charity, hope, love, forgiveness and
Faithful, steady, industrious is Claire.
As a spider cleverly spins a web, slowly
but thoroughly and perfectly, so Claire
performs her daily tasks, the little
threads which have, helped to spin her
lovable character. Claire's sense of
charity and hidden generosity can not
be vied with. Her motto is "A friend
in need is a friend indeed."
'2 5 gives Claire a lot of success as a
Prima Donna as she has proved a most
"Fair ivas she to behold."
Behold our fair Lucy, the most allui'-
ing member of the class of '2 5. Seldom
we find a girl who is faithful to her
studies and yet always ready to join in
Lucy believes in doing all things from
the most insignificant to the mighty, to
the best of her ability and has proved
a valuable asset to O. L. E. We rest
assured that she will achieve wonders
in her future work as a teacher.
Lucy's motto is:
"Better a day of strife.
Than a century of sleep."
"Who has heart as tender and tnie and
spirit as loyal."
When the gods were distributing
their priceless gift of knowledge, Mar-
cella received it in abundance. Some-
times we think they must have touched
her with the wand of wisdom and a
mere mortal mind became like unto
theirs — for Marcella's talents are many.
Marcella's aptitude for writing quaint
poetry or letting her fingers wander
lightly over thei ivories or warbling
some sweet melody, are convincing
proofs that her talents are many and
Great Barrington, Mass.
"To class she always goes prepared,
To cut wou'd be a crime;
To joke and fool her noon's aivaij,
For that she has not time."
Margaret was one of the girls from
the Berkshires who came to O. L. E. to
complete her course and l)ecome pro-
ficient in the art of teaching. Our love
goes with her and also our firm belief
that sometime her name will return to
the "Elms" with a bright star of success
"May friendship shed its gentle rays
To make the ]>ath before thee bright.
And love serenely gild thy days
With a more deep and brilliant light."
"Herein lies wisdom and hedutij."
Mary and Happiness are very con-
genial companions. Her charming per-
sonality has been a source of deep
pleasure to the class of '25. Our one re-
gret was that she was not a sharer in
the various joys and sorrows of "Dorm"
life. Mary is a girl worth knowing and
a friend worth knowing. W!e shall
always remember her as a mighty good
sport and a true blue girl. She is at-
tractive and charming not only in feat-
ure but also in her personality wiiich
made a deep and pleasing impression
on all with whom she came in contact.
"Her hand is ever ready and willing."
Merry Mary, how many epithets might
we apply to your name! The> Fates
certainly did destine Mary to be person-
ified, for ever merrily, ever cheerily she
treads life's solid earth and because of
these qualities she has become endear-
ed to us who know her. Yet this is not
all, for Mary is especially interesting
when giving short talks on methods and
devices for primary grades. "We feel,
that if these are presented in such an
appealing way to the children she
teaches, Mary will win all hearts.
"And, to thy speed, add ivings."
Helen's classmates best recognize her
by her speed. What an energetic, quick,
decisive movement is portrayed in her
every step pitter pattering through the
corridors, on the campus and in the
classroom! Helen uses this energy and
whole-hearted loveliness, nevertheless,
to a great advantage. She has helped
wonderfully with entertainments, socials
and parties of every kind and descrip-
tion, and her skill in managing tiiese
has been duly recognized by all. Ever
shall she be remembered by us all at
O. L. E.
"Thi/ kindness lays upon our hearts."
Simplicity is one of the rare graces.
Dame Fortune seems to have beamed
upon Mary and endowed her with the
grace of simplicity and the charm of
doing "just trifles" for others. Ever
willing, ever ready, enthusiastic and per-
severing in her work we are sure that
the seed sown by her future work in
teaching shall reap a fruitful harvest.
Mary has not been with us day and
night, yet her faithfulness in daily at-
tendance proves her loyalty to her Aluia
Mater and the class of '2 5. Far has her
little candle thrown its beams.
"Music hath charms."
Demure, yet ever stern, gentle, yet
ever strong, a close-up on "Kay" shows
her as one of O. L. E.'s cleverest and
most wholesome girls. In the dim
shadows our eyes have become, a little
softer and our hearts more tender as
the faint sweet notes of a violin have
reached our ears. If we look for the
weaver of charms we find our "Kay"
Nature also find and appreciative ad-
mirer in "Kay," for the smallest bud
as well as the largest flower were
familiar to her. And to the language
of nature she was not a stranger.
"So Iter who in the love of Nature holds
Communion ivith her visH)le forms,
she speaks a various lanfjuage."
"Look in the alass and tell the face thou
"Marge" for short. A "happy go-
lucky" we might call her, for Marge
always seemed to be free from worry
and care. No matter where you meet
her or when you met her, she always
greeted you with a friendly smile. Often
while walking through the corridors one
could hear a charming ditty coming
from Marge's quarters. The class of
'2 5 will always feel indebted to Marge,
for the capable manner in which she
helped to make our Senior party a suc-
cess. Farewell Marge, if we do meet
again, why, we shall smile; if not why
tlien this parting was well made.
"A fihort scu/iug oft contains much
Believing in the laconic method of
speaking, Effie does seem to travel
back to the dear old ancient days of
beloved Sparta in her dreamy reminis-
censes, for she says a few words and
means a great deal. We mus'nt feel
though that this makes her uninter-
esting; indeed just vice versa for,
wherever Effie is, there is also a cup
filled with joy.
"Her heart -was pure and happy.
And she knew not gloom or guile."
How our eyes do flash new pleasure
when we see "Kit", especially at a time
w)!fen we are in some difficulty. Ever
ready, ever willing is she to offer a
suggestion and well might we apply to
her Milton's lines,
"Straight mine eye hath caught new
Whilst the landscape round it meas-
Yet this is not all, for endowed she is
with many gifts, physical and intellec-
tual. Well do we appreciate her for the
printing she has contributed for our
various social events also her ability
as an athlete in helping the Normalites
to win the memorable base-ball game
in our Junior year. With these requis-
ites and many others which coordinate
in perfect harmony we are assured she
shall shine as an intellectual genius in
her professional sphere.
"Ye entertains the time with mirth pro-
Marion, mirth and laughter, walk
hand in hand together and what better
requisites than these are needed to
soothe life's weary ways and bleary
days? Yet how she does manage to be-
come so serious during mathematics.
What an attraction it holds for her
We are assured of Marion's success
as a teacher for the heyday of her fame
is predicted by her manners and pleas-
ing personality and the class of '2 5
hopes to witness such a hoped for
"Cultured indeed ivill they be to whom she
imparts her aesthetic tendencies."
Yes this is Dodo, Tall and slender,
she moves serenely on her way with
calm, unruffled brow. Gracefully too,
does she glide over the floor in the rec-
reation hall, for few there were who
were so advanced in the terpsichorean
art at Dodo. She loved fun too, and
was capable of directing little dances
as we know from experience. For who
was it but Dodo who transformed the
dignified Seniors into little girls when
she wanted characters for "The Little
Red School House" Dance. The class
of '2 5 hope that her course in life will
be as light as she herself was when she
glided over the ball room floor.
"There is nothing more kinghj th(m kind-
There is nothing more roi/al than truth"
Was it the fairy wood nymphs that
helped to weave her happy mind? Some-
times we almost think they did. For to
know Gert well is but to like her better.
Just a gazei and then our wonder grew
for there is something which attracts
and before we know, the gift of friend-
ship is planted deep never to die. But
we must not think that this is her only
gift for to her the nymphs have been
good indeed blessing her with a keen
mind and interested in her work and
the secret of keeping immaculately neat,
a grace so essential to crown the glory
of womanhood. A woman indeed you
are wherein lies a wonderful deep.
"Sing aivaij sorrow, cast aivay care."
Do I really have to get up? Although
not so industrious at early dawn, twi-
light finds Mary Sullivan one of our
gayest and most enthusiastic girls.
Mary possesses those qualities sincerity,
good nature, generosity which some
term good sportsmanship. The mono-
tony of a long winter evening was often
relieved by Mary and brilliant indeed
were the prospects predicted for the
future when she read the cards; the
same cards foretell a glorious future
for Mary as a famous Prima Donna.
"Thou art beloved of manij."
Helen's first year at O. L. E. was
spent mostly in making her way from
Holyoke to Chicopee, which did not give
the girls much of an opportunity to be-
come acquainted with Helen. But
''Opportunity knocked" when Helen de-
cided to stay with us and the dignified
Seniors were not slow to recognize her
value. She was unanimously ele.cted
president. Beloved by all who know her
Helen is sure to suceed. As she made
her happy way through O. L. E. so we
hope she will continue in the future.
"She is ready to laugh ivhen she cries."
Although last, Mary is by no means
least. Bearing a quite and unassuming
manner Joan has left the. "Elms" espec-
ially the class of '2 5 a favorable im-
pression. To know Mary is to know a
very sincere and lovable girl, who has
a wealth of sympathy and love for
others. Although Mary has shed many
tears while at O. L. E. her smile always
won out. Here's to your future success
and may you always keep a place in
your memory for your friends at O. L. E.

We, the Senior Class of "Our Lady of the Elms", being of sound
mind and memory, yet knowing the uncertainties of this life do
make and declare this to be our last will and testament :
Being free from financial difficulties we give, bequeathe, donate
To the Faculty who have endeavored so assiduously to
fill our minds with noble and sublime knowledge, we
leave our heartfelt appreciation with the sincere wish
that in the future years the classes which they undertake
to educate may acquire the facts with greater facility.
To the Juniors we do hereby relinquish all claims to the
The front pews in the chapel, so often graced
by our charming presence.
We bequeath to the aforementioned Juniors the
privilege of succeeding us in the choir provided
they are faithful in answering the summons to
Our beloved classroom so well equipped with
professional data, with the hope that the spirit
of the class of '25 will continually hover over
them and inspire them with brilliant thoughts
to be used in writing their weekly pedogogical
And futhermore we do bequeath our beloved
window seat in Saint Claire's Dorm, fully
equipped with all the comforts of home.
To the commuters we leave an enormous supply
of printed excuses in order that they may have
a variety in them, in place of the time worn
one "the car was late".
To the incoming classes - the privilege of becoming ac-
quainted with O'Leary Hall,- its inmates-its daily routine.
Finally to "Our Lady of the Elms" we leave the assurance
of our unwavering loyalty and firm support.
In witness whereof we the class of 1925 here unto set our hands
and seal this thirteenth day of June, in the year of our Lord one

sure, but all the more so when it is
known that her journeys are from the
remote regions of far off Armory Street.
We cannot say what Peg intends to do,
yet we have no fears. W^ith her re-
markable capabilities in dancing she. is
sure to rise above the rank and file.

Kay owes her sweet character to her
long, happy years spent under the guid-

of her life is closing, in which she has
travelled from the wee grades of gram-
mar school to the more sedate heights
of Senior Class. She has entered whole
heartedly into all the sports of our
school but particularly did she shine in
baseball, the noblest of games.
We know that it is with dewey eyes
that she will depart from the "Elms"

source of interest to her classmates.
Although Mary has not been a mem-
ber of our class for the entire high
school course, she has surely added to
the joy and happiness of our members.

member of the class in her perusal of

she will smile, for who could think of
"Duggie" and her pranks without do-

by her wit and her "off days".
Elizabeth has been a great inspira-
tion to her classmates and we hope,
people will recognize her as such, in
the wide, wide, world. We also hope
she will make friends as easily in the
future, as she has at O. L. E.

We were just about to embark upon
the Senior lap of our journey when our
beloved school mate Mary, changed her
course of living from Chicopee to West
Mary has been one of our artists for
the last three years and it is to her we
owe many of our decorations and post-
ers. In all our public entertainments,
Mary has always been interested and
showed the best of spirit.
Although Mary is somewhat indepen-

with her social activities and we hope
she will continue to remain so in the

"She is pretty to ivalk with, and witty to
talk with, and pleasant, too, to think on."
There is no one in our four years of
high school who has created more
laughs than ''Neet". W* all know
when she is about for we hear in the
dim distance ''O be yourself".
Neet, you must know, was heart and
soul bound up in music and was always
found accompanied by her mandolin,
until alas! we must stop here. Why?
If while strolling around the campus
you should happen upon a group of
girls exploding with laughter, inquire
not into the cause. "Neet" is merely
unfolding the tale of her latest exploit.
"Bluahing is the color of virtue."
Do we know Mary Landers? Well I
should say we do. Her generosity and
her profuse blushes are two of her most
common characteristics. Ever since the

see there one of her masterpieces, we
feel she will not be surprised, for

We sincerely hope that through years
to come her friendly and winsome man-

in the future as it has in the past.

Antonia who is known to be the most
dignified of Seniors, is renowned for her
position as postmistress.
Through all her four years of high
scliool Antonia has been a model stu-

Here's hoping, Antonia, you will for-

are sure that Eleanor will not forget
her old friend Virgil but alas Virgil

goes on forever. We can easily imagine,

severance is numbered among her other
virtues. Her optimistic view of things
has often enlightened our dark hours
of exams and other such hoary events.
We wish her every success in her future

her. When silence reigns Lillian is not

southern sojourn next winter you will
not add any avidupois to your now well
balanced weight as you have so often
However Lillian, this last year we
have had the pleasure of having a jolly
little Senior added to our group.

Ah! How names deceive. Demure
she seems, but mischievous she is, dur-
ing all her four years spent under the
guiding influence of Our Lady of the
Elms the only fault we can find with
her is this one never knows whether
she is at any time immersed in the most
frivolous exploits or most devotional of
actions. Mary Rose has the happy fac-
ulty of hiding her expression under an
inscrutable mask. Beware old world!

How we the class of '25 have learned the golden rule,
Altho" we're few in number we're the finest in the school.
We're among the greatest scholars you read about today,
For we always do our best and try to give fair play.
Now there's Tooty Burke and Neeta Keefe who took the state exams,
They thought they'd earn their living without the marriage bans.
Then there's Mary L. and Catherine G. the typists of the school,
They always work steadily and never break a rule.
Then there's Tonia and Eleanor the bright lights of our class.
They always do their best the others to surpass.
Lillian S. and Margaret B. an accident once had
But no lives were lost and we all were mighty glad.
Grace McGrath and Mary H. our faithful, old day-hops.
There always on time for school unless their Big Ben stops.
Mary Cunningham and Olive G. the happiest girls are they.
For they always enjoy themselves no matter what the day.
Now there's Mary Rose and Duggy too, the children of our class,
Who always act as though they were full of laughing gas.
This completes our roll of names upon our teacher's desk,
We hope that you will realize we've tried to do our best.
Now Juniors dear, please listen here, while we dutifully advise.
And if you wish to persevere and always be thought wise
Just listen to your teacher's words and always her obey,
Because to gain in knowledge thats the only way.

FIRST BASEBALL GAME
The first social event of the year long anticipated and practiced
for was the baseball game, Normalites against High School. A
continual battle was waged, not only between competing teams, but
also by the opposing cheering squads.
The contest was an exciting one and the crowd was held at the
highest tension because of the well-matched ability of players on
both teams. After a strenuous struggle by contending parties, the
game ended in favor of Normalites. A surprise was held in store
for the victorious teams, when somewhat cooled after their lab-
orious contest each member was presented by our honorable referee,
Right Reverend Bishop Thomas M. O'Leary, with a set of silver
cufflinks. Thus ended the first of many perfect days to follow.
ALUMNAE WHIST PARTY
On Columbus Day the Alumnae entertained with a Whist Party.
Friends of both Alumnae and students were present and prizes were
offered as an incentive to more energetic playing among various
groups. After an enjoyable evening at cards and participation in
dainty refreshments, the guests departed for their respective cities
and the girls withdrew to their rooms to discuss the events of the en-
"And the goblins will get you if you don't watch out". Initia-
tion! What awe and terror this word instilled into the hearts of
the timid Juniors. Big and little all alike lost a few degrees of
their robust complexion as well as a few pounds of avoirdupois.
Fantastic signs, posters and weird notes under pillows indicated
that the "Reign of Terror" had once more returned to persecute
the innocent Juniors. The terrors of Ichabod Crane on his hair-
raising ride across the bridge accompanied by the headless horse-
man were mere trifles compared to the mental anguish endured
by the girls.
The gloomy veil that had enveloped us was at first lifted by the
unique appearance of the dining hall ; and in the delightful supper
which followed, the evil forebodings were temporarily averted.
Then too the jolly minstrel makers as cleverly costumed; as they
were with songs and jokes, were an other favorable omen. But
alas! the curtain had fallen and our misfortune had begun. It is
the unwritten law that no Junior shall ever mention the harrowing
experiences endured that memorable night. But our one consola-
tion was that we too as Seniors would one day be the cruel per-
ST. PATRICK'S DAY
March 17th along with its dreams of old Erin prompted us to
celebrate the day with anovel luncheon. The highly cultivated
aesthetic sense of the Irish was portrayed by the atmosphere of
harmony which pervaded the interior of the dining hall. The
color scheme was cleverly carried out to the minutest detail; even
the delectables were served in those refreshing colors for which
the Emerald Isle has always been famous.
We then proceeded to College Hall where new joys awaited us.
Here the hall echoed and re-echoed with sweet strains of "Come
Back to Erin, Mavourneen" and we were carried back in spirit to
dear Erin. The fair colleens and lads with their high silk hats
entertained us pleasantly for the evening.
"The Seniors are now quite the thing tra-la.
The Seniors are now quite the thing".
What a wealth and enthusiasm spurred the Juniors on to make
Memorial Day a real memorable one in the hearts of the Seniors.
No pagoda in the Orient could be compared to the interior of the
Casino which presented an attractive Japanese scene.
The lanterns shed their faint glow through lattice work inter-
woven with lavender hues of delicate wistaria. A sumptuous ban-
quet was served. Between the various courses songs were sung
and toasts given to the graduating class. Then according to the
custom of preceding years, the following program was rendered
by the Junior class.

"Tempus Fugit". Time flies, so they say, and so we believe for
here it is a year from the day which instilled such awe and terror
into timid Junior hearts. The poor persecuted have at last reached
the stage to enjoy being the tormenting persecutors. Every device
of the crafty Ulysses was employed to terrify our successors in
a program in such a manner as to cause the Juniors to forget the
penalties which were in store for them later.
A process of blindfolding constituted the preliminary step and
a lone journey accompanied only by the persecutor and then
I ** 'jYxQ outcome and grand finale alas will ever remain
a reminicent secret to those who know.
'Twas the eighteenth day of February 1925
When a few old-fashioned customs
We thought to minstrelize ;
So we set the date
While a chorus we did choose
To fashion this quaint, quaint fete
And our talents great to prove.
Just a few old-fashioned ballads of our great grandfather's time
Mellowed with songs of darkies
To make our play extra fine;
Two charming little maidens did the waltz of long ago
In the ancient colonial manner
Of the long ago belle and beau.
'Twas just a grand success that little minstrel play
For Father Time to write
And place in memory's way
As fun we had galore
When at practice we did try
To mimic those dainty damsels
Of the sixties and eighty fives.
Immediately afterward a pretty little tea
Was given in our dining hall
To toast our honored three
Guests they were and honored
Bishop and Fathers two
Who came from far to see us
Put this quaint old Minstrel through.
How the time has fled ! How you've flown days
With all your song and play
Only to live in dreamlands sway
Just think about it sometimes
With all its gala and scenes
And you'll sure enjoy it
Like nature's merry sunbeams.
